Whelen Engineering to Sponsor Archer Viper

Englewood, Colorado -- Whelen Engineering has signed on as an associate sponsor of the number 22/c3controls/3R Viper driven by Tommy Archer in the SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge Speed GT series.

For over 50-years, Chester, Connecticut based Whelen Engineering has researched designed and developed warning and signaling devices. The company's innovations in LED and Strobe lightbars and lightheads has set the industry standard for Police, Fire and Rescue, Emergency, DOT, as well as Maintenance and Construction equipment.

"Tommy Archer is a long time friend and represents his team and sponsors in a very professional manner. The 3R team makes an excellent presentation at the track and their level of preparation keeps their cars at the front of the field where we can realize the highest visibility for our brand," said Sonny Whelen, Whelen Engineering.

"Whelen understands the value in racing. Their involvement in NASCAR over the years has prompted them to also look at road racing as a way to supplement their marketing activities," said Tommy Archer. "With their help we will be able to keep the 3R Viper running at the front of the field."

Archer is coming off his second consecutive top five finish at Lime Rock Park last weekend. He currently sits fourth in driver points. The next World Challenge GT race will be held at Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course on June 20.
